Just joined a Mom’s Group out here in my neck of the woods. I’m still trying to figure out in my head how it’s gonna work with me (by myself) handling both boys on an outing!?!?!
My brain is having a hard time figuring out how this is going to be doable and allow me to have any fun in the process.
Here’s what I do know:
- I need to get out of the house for my sanity’s sake!
- I desperately need fellowship with other moms! There’s no doubt in my mind about this.
- My boys need to be around other children for their social development.
I feel the biggest obstacle in all of this is me- I’m already counting myself out of the game before I’ve even tried to get in the game.
As a fairly new mom (1 year now) I’m still trying to figure out things I should be doing or things I need to get involved in. It’s really just been me and the boys hanging out this last year- and dad with us on occassion because of his very open work schedule. This whole mom’s group idea has been something I know that I’ve needed to do for awhile. I know it could be a great thing for all of us if I would just try it.
Yes, I’m sure things with the boys will be without some bumps in the road but I’ll never know what I’m missing if I don’t just try it. I’m not the first woman in the world to have two one year olds at the same time- although at times I act like it!
Just when I think I’ve got things figured out with raising these boys/our schedule there’s a change either in them developmentally (crawling, walking, etc..) or a change with us as a family, like my hubby’s new job starting on Monday. It’s great cause we need the finances but it was so nice to have him home on certain days to help me with these two crazy toddlers.
Time to adjust again. I can do it! I know I can with the Lord’s strength and wisdom.
